Centrum Wolontariatu (The Volunteer Centre, Poland)

Introduction to the Partner

The Volunteer Centre was established in 1993 at the BORIS Support Office for the Movement of Social Initiatives. It was the first such initiative in Poland. The development of civic society in Poland made volunteering more and more popular in our country. The multitude and diversity of our activities led to the establishment of the Volunteer Centre Association in 1996.

The primary objective of our Association is the promotion and development of civic society in local communities. In order to ensure a professional character of such initiatives, we have been building the foundations of volunteering based on a system of volunteer recruitment and training. The Volunteer Centre in Warsaw contributes to the development of the new Volunteer Centres and supports the existing ones.

The organisation also runs ‘Business Volunteering’ programme addressed to all Polish companies involved in developing corporate volunteering. The programme is designed to promote good ideas, support management and workers engaged in corporate volunteering and unite companies in common effort of bringing a real social change to life. Through consultancy, publications, open conferences and realisation of particular events we prove the corporate volunteering to be one of the most effective ways of local community engagement.

We have a deep passion for seeing really dynamic effective corporate responsibility all over the world - it's core to our values and central to our business. So being in from the start with CSR360 GPN was an obvious route for KPMG to help spread the energy and the opportunity for transformed communities where business plays its rightful role driving change and supporting the people and the places who are often forgotten and frequently in need of business engagement. Its our privilege to be involved.
